I know, I know. It’s January. How can I already be talking about Spring Break?!
Well, if you are planning to go somewhere, you’ve been planning that for months now and believe me, it’ll be here before you know it! But if you are hanging around Indy, this is going to put you ahead of the game!
Staying home for spring break shouldn’t be a bust! There’s so much to do in Hamilton County and we all just need to take advantage of what’s right in our own backyard. I got together with Shelly at DIY Mama to bring you a list of what you can do right here and stay active over spring break!
Get #INOutdoors with Local Parks:
There are some really A W E S O M E parks around here. Between Fishers, Noblesville, and Carmel, Hamilton County Parks do not disappoint! Flat Fork Creek Park in Fishers located near 101st St. and Cyntheanne Rd, offers a progressive mountain bike course along with three tree houses with one being fully ADA accessible. Forest Park in Noblesville offers perfectly fun spring break activities including mini-golf and a carousel. Flowing Well Park in Carmel might be one of the best spots to creek stomp and you can grab a water refill at the “Old Faithful” artesian well.
